Salford City Reds boss Karl Harrison has stepped down as England coach after two years in charge.
Harrison, set to sign a new three-year contract with Salford, led England to European Nations Cup success in 2004 and then steered the Great Britain ?A? team to a win over France last year before a narrow defeat by New Zealand.
He said: "I want a break to spend more time with my family at the end of this season."
England will take part in a four-nations tournament involving France and probably Samoa and Tonga in this country when Great Britain are involved in the end-of-season Tri-Nations.
